I need to connect to a SQL Server 2008 instance in another Windows domain to manage it. We only use Windows Authentication.
In Windows XP, I could use the "Manage Network Passwords" feature to store on my local machine my username and password for the remote machine. Doing so would cause SQL Server Management Studio to use those credentials, instead of my local credentials, when connecting to that server. This worked great, and prevented my having to enter a username or password every time I connected with SSMS.
But, Holy Cow, after upgrading to Windows 7, I can no longer do this. Adding my remote domain credentials in Credential Manager fails to produce the desired behavior. SMSS 2008 R2 ignores the stored credentials, and instead, always sends my local credentials, causing the login to fail every time. There's not even a way, within SMSS, to enter alternate credentials, so the upshot is that I simply cannot access the remote server!
How can I get SMSS on Windows 7 to work the same way it did on Windows XP?
